If you are unhappy with your total comp right now... we need to chat! I've helped 10 people this year increase their salary by over $20K! One of my clients increased their salary by over $75K! I've got 3 open spots! I'm a senior manager at Amazon and have interviewed, mentored, and coached hundreds of people. Earlier this year I opened up my own consulting and coaching firm. Send me a DM and we can set up a free call. I'll talk you through my process and see if I am a good fit for your goals!
